The Kitchen Table is a neighborhood restaurant located on the west end in San Rafael, California.  


Chef Alexander and Nunzio Alioto, master sommelier, combine forces to create a fun, approachable dinner experience.

We focus on high quality, country-style Italian food that is approachable for the entire family. The menu is highlighted

by fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from local purveyors, and the delicate, homemade pastas are a must

try for any visit to The Kitchen Table. 

Our open concept kitchen invites guests to interact with Chef Alexander Alioto where

our neighbors, friends, and family can gather around our kitchen table to share stories, laugh, and eat well.


The wine list is composed by master sommelier, Nunzio Alioto, who has hand-picked food-friendly wines that bring exceptional

value to our customers. We sourced unique and exciting wines from around the world that you would otherwise never know about. 

We look forward to welcoming you at The Kitchen Table.
